Give the dog a bath. She's stinky.

Dala, what was that podcast? About the prisoners and redemption and brain chemistry at all? Inquiring minds would like to know.

Thing number one. I like the name froggyflow, just because I can rhyme it with froggybro, so kudos for that.

Thing number two. This place is kind of tight knit. Not tight knit as in cliquish, but tight knit in that you'll see the same names of users and contributors over and over again. It's pretty awesome, because you'll get to know users on a pretty familiar level. There's a ton of benefits behind that, but I think the biggest one is, while a lot of us often disagree with eachother, we're never actual dicks to eachother. I've been internetting for over 20 years now. I can't say that for most places I've been on in the past 10 years. That makes this place pretty special.

Thing number three. Bring your interests to the Hubski table. If there's a conversation you want to have and it's not happening, start it. You'll sometimes be amazed at who has something to contribute and what they have to say.

Thing number four. It's exciting to have you here. Welcome. :)

I'm sure they'll be remembered much in the way we remember guys like Ford, Rockefeller, Carnegie, JP Morgan, etc. Big men with big influences that shaped our world for better or worse.

How well did the Batman Reboot go? From what I remember, people complained that The New 52 Reboot heavily condensed the time line for Batman's continuity.

The art museum didn't have any books I was willing to spend zillions of dollars on. So I went to the comic shop and spent zillions of dollars on comics instead. Am I a man of consistency or am I a man of habit? Is there a difference?

If the dog didn't insist on napping and basking in the sun all day, I'd try to get her to join too. ;)

Send your Imzy friends here. Tell them we don't have pizza or coffee, but Pubski's flat, digital pilsner has been faithful through the years.

I'm curious as to what you used to read and currently want to read, if only because if you don't look at the Big 2, there's still so much amazing stuff out there, especially if you look at non-ip titles.

Do you have comic shops in Sweden? I think you're in Sweden. If so, go. Talk to your comic shop guys. Tell them what kinds of things you enjoy out of stories, settings, plots, etc. Tell them what you don't enjoy. Tell them what titles tickle your fancy and why and what ones you think you want to avoid and why. Tell them your budget and what you hope to get out of your reading experience. See what they suggest.

If you're looking at reading cape comics and you know that you don't want to invest a lot of time and money into following anything in particular, ask them about stand alone stories that they'd recommend. For example, if you're interested in Batman, they might recommend the graphic novel The Long Halloween. It's a great Batman story, disconnected from the Batman universe as far as continuity is concerned, and has a large cast of characters that you can enjoy and appreciate without even knowing The Batman comics too well.

If you're looking at comics as a medium and aren't too interested in following in particular, ask them about standalone graphic novels they might recommend. There's stuff there all over the genre spectrum from science fiction to drama to mystery to crime to autobiographies. There's stuff out there that spans from the mundane to the surreal to the avant garde.

If you're really new, and really interested in comics as a medium, before anything else, I recommend you check out Understanding Comics by Scott McLeod. As crazy as it sounds, reading comics well requires a little understanding of how the medium works, and that book will help you be able to dive into comics headfirst and allow you to appreciate them than if you just went in all willy nilly.

I heard about that. There's supposedly a patch coming in Junglefowl 52.37-12.183 update. The programmer loosefeathers found that the previous update affected all of the models running the G. g. domesticus distro. Apparently it was some kind of memory stack error that didn't manifest itself until after 1,200+ hours of uninterrupted runtime.

    Sorry to hear about the neighbors; who wouldn't want neighbors with chickens?

I've been told that certain breeds of chickens love field mice. If one of my neighbors wanted to keep a few chickens that loved field mice, I'd be all for it. Like centipedes and spiders in the basement, it can't hurt, right?
